Filmmaking Camp (Summer)

 

This summer, each of our camp sessions will be two weeks long. As part of our registration process, we are excited to partner with CampDoc, a third party program we will be using to collect and consolidate camper registration information in order to streamline the registration process, and enhance the parent and guardian experience while your child is participating in summer camp. CampDoc will give parents and guardians full access to their own participant portal which they can log into at any time to view camp session details and information, and previously submitted documents.

Once a camp session has been purchased on the JBFC website, an email from CampDoc will follow in the coming weeks with instructions on how to create a CampDoc account and submit additional required registration information, such as an updated immunization record, a list of allergies, names of individuals who are authorized to pick your child up from camp, doctor and insurance information, etc., and the deadlines by which this information must be received. We look forward to welcoming your child to camp this summer.

IT’S TIME TO MAKE A MOVIE! Campers will create a short film with the support of film-loving peers and the guidance of a professional film instructor. Whether it’s a camper’s first or fiftieth time making a movie, our staff will meet campers at their individual skill level and encourage their growth. We believe there is always something new to learn, especially in the creative world of visual storytelling! Each camp session also includes watching films, participating in fun team-building games, scavenger hunts, and quick film challenges.

  • pitch and storyboard ideas
  • learn how to compose the best shots
  • collaborate as part of a film crew
  • enhance problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • perform on camera
  • receive peer and instructor feedback
  • edit with Adobe Premiere Pro CC
  • screen work at the JBFC Theater
